    I’m taking biology, maths and psychology for a-levels, but I don’t know what university degree I want or can do?

    Most Psychology courses would be very accessible to you, and you'd probably be better prepared than many. This includes e.g. PBS at Cambridge, or Experimental Psychology at Oxford. Human Sciences (e.g. at Oxford or UCL) or Biological Anthropology (either in the guise of Human Sciences, on it's own at a handful of universities ex Leeds, or part of another course such as most Archaeology courses having options in it) would also be a good option. Alternately just Anthropology generally, if you prefer a more...human, approach to the study of people.

    Otherwise, virtually any social science course (including Economics) most humanities courses (except History and English Lit, and any modern languages, mainly), and some bioscience courses (mainly organismal/evolutionary/ecological oriented ones) would be an option. Some Earth Sciences courses (such as Oceanography, Palaeontology, a few Geology courses, and similar) would be possibilities. You could do Maths at a fair number of universities, even without FM - but if this is something you want to consider I'd probably suggest considering picking up FM to AS at least if you can.

    There are a few medicine courses that don't require Chemistry.
